Would it be possible to get those tinkle sounds that thief always used? I always found they made the game a little more mystical when used.

For example listen to the tinkle sounds starting at 0:46 on this video:

I didn't know what else to call them other than tinkle sounds. :blush:

Also wind chime sounds would be great!

Yeah, that's probably manageable. I liked those sounds too, especially the tuneful ones near that box which shot an arrow at you in the Bonehoard.

Ditto that, every time I hear wind chimes I think of Thief.

I tell you, just hearing the sounds that start at precisely 0:27 gives me chills. So much of the Thief experience is the sound design alone. To say it shines and impresses upon the player is an understatement; simple sounds recalling memories that will stay with me for life.

Where are the twinkle sounds located? I've found the wind chimes.


Finally:
The weird talking sounds that thief used so much in their cut-scenes would be awesome! I think I could use these to freak some players out:

0:34-0:47

Drums, I love these:

1:07-1:25

There's one in current SVN that I kind of like (done with strings): \sound\ambient\environmental\dd_music_bum_bum_1b.ogg

I like them but maybe a lower pitched version would be spookier, although they sound like their on the same note so maybe that would mess it up.
